KDM won't start my KDE...

I don't know how but I've broken something in my kdm. I've tried logging kde, icewm and gnome and on all of them, all I get is an xterm in a dotted background. I've tried with no luck moddifyng my kderc file.

Any suggestions please?
Thanx in advance.

PS: I use Debian Sid for Amd64.

Did it the windows way (apt-get remove --purge kdm; apt-get install kdm) and worked (had tried before without purgue, but it was the key ).
